Jim Ross Injures His Ribs During NJPW Show
Jim Ross may have suffered a broken rib while calling the NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco on Saturday.
During one spot, Jay White suplexed Juice Robinson into the ringside barricade, which knocked the barricade into the announce table, which apparently knocked the announce table into Jim Ross’s ribs and knocked him back off his seat.
You can check out the spot below, which was apparently not planned, so JR and fellow commentator Josh Barnett were not expecting it.

Ross believes that he may have a broken rib, according to PWInsider, and says he was in terrible pain while flying home from the show and had problems lifting his arms up to put his overhead baggage in the compartment on the plane. Ross is getting checked out by a doctor today.
